If you haven’t heard of “Galentine’s Day,” the idea gained notoriety from a Parks and Recreation episode. Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) dubbed February 13th the day for celebrating all the ladies in your life.
I have sort of celebrated this holiday most of my adult life without realizing it, but it was more of a boycott of Valentine’s Day where I would give my friends “Happy Tuesday” cards with hearts on the day of, without actually acknowledging V-day.
But (just like Valentine’s Day), I say celebrate this any day! Or at least all week.
The show celebrated Galentine’s Day typically with a ladies brunch, but here are some food and gift ideas for all your Galentine’s.
